He's Here!

Well ... I have to admit ... 
... I've been holding out on you ...

You might have guessed.

... or maybe you sent me an email ...

in which case I always answered truthfully 
all the while asking you to help keep our secret.

But now he's here and I'm positively bursting at the seams!

was born at 2:51 am on 
28 February 2013


He was almost 12 weeks too early ...

... but weighed 1305 grams / 2 pounds, 14 ounces at birth ...

Finn is a whopping 39,5cm / 15-1/2" long
and has the most amazing long fingers and really big feet

Five minutes after birth his apgar score was 10 out of 10 and 
he's been holding his own with no support, no oxygen needed.

The last five days have been incredible. 

Of course with any premie, there have been a few ups and downs, 
but really mainly small little "hiccups" that we've been able to overcome with 
the help of the wonderful staff of doctors and nurses at UZ Gent.

He is doing so well and we couldn't be more proud!
